Confessional Thursday is Back!


Thursday, May 5, 2016

Ladies, I am so excited to be co-hosting my first Confessional Thursday with Lynn at Dispositive Motion. We really wanted to carry on the tradition that Leslie Sisti (A Blonde Ambition) started and Jess (The Newly) continued. And now it is our turn to take the reigns.

Wanna join in on the fun? It is super easy. Confess your heart out, grab the button (html) below and put it in your post and come back to link up with us (at the bottom of this page).

Now that the business side is taken care of....onto the Confessions.

I confess that having two sick babies is like taking care of 20 babies. So much work, so many boogers, so many tears and way too many glasses of scotch. Yes, I have ended my nights with a generous glass of scotch. Don't judge.

I confess that I can't stop looking at these photos from the wedding we went to last weekend. They make me smile every time I see them.

I confess that I have a sore throat and I am quite mad about it. It HAS to go away before the weekend because I want to see family and enjoy Mother's Day.

I confess that this weather here is dumb. For a day or two it is in the low 70s and then bam, rain and winds with temps in the 50s. I enjoy our evening walks and we can't go on them when the weather is like this. Spring give me sunshine.

I confess that I am dying to see the movie Bad Moms. I watched the trailer yesterday and I couldn't stop laughing. I am sure I will never be the Pinterest perfect mom (even though I try to be), so this seems right up my alley. Are you going to see it?

I confess that I am not that crafty, so I borrowed an idea off Pinterest for the girls' teacher appreciation gift. I think it turned out just like the picture and I am happy with it. Plus I added a little note from the girls.
Yes, you can see my tape. I ran out of the invisible stuff.

I confess that I purposely didn't buy anything from the grocery store for dinner last night because I hate cooking after getting a massage and facial (I spoiled myself!). No one wants to cook after relaxing, so take out it was and I don't regret it at all.

I confess that I still went to the gym yesterday even with a sore throat. I didn't want to skip it (it re-energizes me for the rest of the workday) because I have made such great progress going 2 to 3 times a week since I was given the go to workout again.

I confess that I "forgot" my lunch yesterday so that I would have lunch today and not have to go to lunch with my co-workers today. It's not the co-workers, but the monster burritos they were getting. Sure, I love a good burrito, but after Mexico and its amazing food, I didn't want to be disappointed.

I confess that my momma heart bursts at the seams when I see how much Sutton is a mommy's girl. Avery may be a daddy's girl, but when he isn't around, she is all about her mommy and it melts my heart. I am beyond thankful and grateful to be the mother to my little ladies.

And those are my confessions. Don't forget to link up below.

    1. I so wanted to go to the gym today, but my throat is really bad, so I opted out of it. Needing the rest and decided to treat myself to a really big iced latte instead. Priorities. Ha.

    1. It definitely is. I hate it and feel so bad that they can't tell me what is going on.

  8. So glad that you gals are hosting this again! I missed it during the two weeks that it was gone.

    Y'all are so adorable in your pictures from the wedding. You look gorgeous in that dress!

    I hope you feel better quickly so you can enjoy your weekend. You should make yourself a hot toddy and go to bed early tonight. My grandmother used to make hot toddys for me when I had a sore throat and it always knocked it out... probably because the bourbon burned away all the germs. Ha!

    1. Me too!

      Thank you so much!

      I think a hot toddy and bedtime around 8 pm sounds heavenly. I need all the sleep I can get. I am hoping the bourbon will burn the germs for sure!

  11. Hope you and your girls feel better ASAP. Those wedding photos are so much fun! I used the exact same Thanks A Latte printable last year and again this year. I did DD gift cards though since there's a DD less than 5 minutes from school!

    1. Me too. Being sick is such a drag. DD is awesome too, but we only have one close to work and I got the gift card in Reno. But good idea for next year!!!
